A family in the UK were celebrating this week after pocketing over £350,000 on the Euro Millions lottery, despite having just £22 in the bank. The family from Cork have chosen to remain anonymous, and quietly popped along to the National Lottery offices in Dublin to claim their prize.
The couple were unable to win the £161 million jackpot, after missing out on a Lucky Star. Still, winning £350,000 is certainly not a bad way to go for any family. Despite not revealing their identities, they were happy to give anonymous interviews. The winner said that they have always considered themselves a lucky person, and that they had had mild success on the Euro Millions over the previous few weeks.
The winner claims that they were down to the last £22 in the bank on Thursday, and they were a bit concerned about how they would make everything last over the next few weeks. This is now something they needn’t worry about.
After winning over £350,000, the family now plans to buy the family home they have been dreaming about, and clear off the mortgage on it. They are now set up for life, and no longer have to worry about money for a while. The next Euro Millions jackpot draw is held tonight, and is estimated to be worth around £68 million following the win last week.
One would imagine that the anonymous family will be partaking in this major event, too, knowing full well that luck has been with them thus far.
